STRYD + Coros PACE 2 Combo Double-Discount Deal : UK/EU

FTC: Affiliate Disclosure: All links pay commissionReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Coros PACE 2 plus STRYD Deal

Buy them both and get a bundle discount plus a free box of gels. What’s not to like? “The price,” I hear you say. You continue “It’s a fair enough deal, I know, but…well…I wish it were less.”

Fear Not. To the already discounted combo price with the gels thrown in just add a sneaky little THE5KRUNNER10 discount code and, Bob’s your uncle, a further 10% off. This is surely a mistake but I let New Running gear know about it a few hours back and it’s still there (see image above). So…. you know what to do. When it’s gone…it’s gone.

There is the same kind of deal for any of the coros watches plus STRYD. Different price points but the same principle applies.

Deal here LINK TO NEWRUNNINGGEAR.COM.

Enjoy!

  • Pace 2: £190
  • STRYD 4: £200
  • Gels: £10 (let’s say)
  • Total: £400
  • What you pay: £300. 25% off by my maths

As of typing this, only the white silicone strap version is available – all other are sold out and cannot be pre-ordered.
And I have a Stryd already 😉

I think I’ll support my local dealer instead.

Will

A great price indeed. And something needed to be done, as DCR mentioned – why buy Stryd when Coros gives you free power? The devil is in the detail, but most potential new customers would see it as simply as that.

From a marketing point of view I think “Buy a Coros get a 1/2 price Stryd” would look better. As it would make the Coros pod seem almost redundant.

Will

A £100 discount whether is marketed as 10% plus an extra 10% off the whole package, or just 50% off the pod, is the same discount. But yes I guess Stryd need to be careful how their product is sold 🙂

I would not recommend newrunninggear. I ordered 3 weeks ago, and haven’t seen nothing yet!!! Very, very bad customerservice. No answers. http://Www.lavenderworld.co.uk is behind that site now, but you can’t see that, before you get your orderreceipt. Try and Google “new reviews” of that site!!!

tfk, the5krunner

hi
I have asked them to respond to you directly and/or here.
Coros should be shipping stock to NewRunning Gear between ‘now’ and the end of this month.
they can update you better on the specifics.
this is a global problem with retailers not getting stock of the pace 2, naturally, that doesn’t excuse at least a courtesy email to keep you updated

Kai

If you’re in Denmark, try rulleskisport in Hellerup. They were the first to get Pace 2 watches (I purchased the very first). According to the DK distributor, most/all watches went to France.

tfk, the5krunner

they have no stock.

Zsolt

I can confirm.
Their practice is so far from the fair and ethical business practice.

In the last 7 days I asked them 4 times for sending me the TrackID given by the parcel service that will deliver my Stryd.

I haven’t receive any TrackID.

They played the role of deaf and stupid one as always answered me an increased time of expected delivery time due to load at Royal Mail instead of sending me a TrackID

And a TrackID in normal cases could be created automatically by the parcel service if they receive any package handed over them…

I know how COVID causes delays in all the countries.
And I would accept any delay, mainly if I could see on Royal Mail web site the digital trail of my parcel as it is approching to me.

And finally, “of course” they didn’t react

  • for my order cancellation and
  • refunding request.

If nothing will happen on the next week I will report my case to Police.

tfk, the5krunner

that sounds unusual, let me get them to respond.
STRYD orders should be shipping.

In my other business I ship to non-UK companies a lot. if i use standard national mail services (ie NOT ups, dhl, fedex) then, yes, deliveries can take a long time (weeks) and, yes, tracking IDs from national services don’t always work even if sent.

Zsolt

Thanks a lot.

“…tracking IDs from national services don’t always work even if sent.”
OK, but NRG didn’t send me any TrackID.
Therefore we don’t know whether it works.

tfk, the5krunner

I take this seriously even though it’s out of my control.
so i am chasing them as well, in their defence they are a small company and i have worked with them since march 2017, so i’m pretty sure the destination will be good if maybe the journey has not been quite so good.

Zsolt

I take this seriously even though it’s out of my control.”
I know, so I really appreciate you effort very much.
🙂

Zsolt

Good news: Refund has been landed at PayPal.

Thank you very much again for your helpfulness and if the outcome is due to your actual intervention then … I am more than grateful 🙂

tfk, the5krunner

Just pay with PayPal! At some point if the order never shows up, just open a dispute and you will get your money 100% back. This is what I am gonna do. The bundle offer with the coupon code is just unbeatable, it is worth the risk haha.

tfk, the5krunner

don’t forget the5krunner discount as well 😉

yes, if you use a credit (not debit) card as well then the issuer will give you your money back if the retailer does not honour the contract. Admittedly that process might be easier with PayPal.

Anyway, as i think I said above, no-one has Pace 2 stock…hopefully that will all be resolved next week.

Törr

I did! I got the watch and the pod for £290.70 which is pretty much unbeatable. And I can wait for the Coros Pace 2, all French retailers are out of stock. The watch sold out in like 2 days, both online and brick-and-mortar.

Zsolt

Yes, fortunately I piad via PayPal.

Since I didn’t trust NRG, after my order-cancellation I opened a dispute at PayPal as well (which can take 21 days…).

They still have not been reacting to my cancellation and refunding request…

Törr

The offer seemed too good to be true but I gave it a chance since they accept PayPal which has a generous buyer protection 🙂

Still I prefer to get the goods eventually, hopefully sooner than later.

tfk, the5krunner

it’s a genuine deal..i checked before mentioning it a while back !

Törr

I am really excited to get the combo!!! And I do not mind to wait since local retailers here in France will not be restocked until mid-November. Thank you by the way,

tfk, the5krunner
Will

I’ve bought stuff from NRG before. They’re a good company.

I ordered my Pace 2 from them too. Good communication. But once a great 645M deal appeared I cancelled my Pace 2 order. Received a refund the next day.

Great shame about Pace 2 availability. Reviews were good. Just needed to get stock to customers to maintain momentum.

tfk, the5krunner

thanks Will
the stock IS there…it’s just MOSTLY with Coros GLOBALLY. so you have to buy direct which, of course, is more profitable for Coros. I guess when it’s a small company you can’t blame them for wanting to get some funds in.

as highlighted here:

Will

Looks as if Amazon UK will be getting some white Pace 2 on Nov 2, for delivery on 4th. 👍

tfk, the5krunner

nope.
they’re just getting small amounts of stock every couple of weeks. same as the uk distributor

Will

It was showing as available for 15mins or so. Then it went. Guess small amount of stock was quickly taken up.

Törr

Does it mean that there is a chance I do not get by mid-Nov the combo Coros Pace 2-Stryd I paid for a week ago?

tfk, the5krunner

I seem to be relaying 2nd hand info from Coros, NRG and others.
A: It depends how big the queue is and where you are in the queue. I don’t know the exact answer.

Cláudio Guarda

This is not correct, NEWRUNNINGGEAR.COM it´s not allowed to sell outside UK (I bought the Coros Pace 2 in August and yesterday received an e-mail cancelling the purchase because they can´t sell to EU, Portugal in my case).

Törr

Same for me in France.

I regret to inform you that we have had to cancel your Coros Pace 2 watch order. We have been sent new legislation from Coros stating we are no longer legally allowed to trade the Pace 2 out of the United Kingdom.
You will have noticed that you have received a full refund.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We would also like to thank you for your understanding and continued support during these unprecedented times.

Törr

@Cláudio Guarda did you ever get your refund? Still pending after 8 days for me… Really annoying.

tfk, the5krunner

Yes. NRG has very recently been restricted from selling outside the UK by Coros.
Refunds should be processed.
NRG are a good company: try the story here as an indication https://the5krunner.com/2020/12/08/stryd-flash-giveaway-now-xmas-2020-runner-running-ukrunchat/

Stoyan Delev

I wish I read these comments before placed my order. NRG does not know what is customer support, sent 5 emails and no reply from them. Finally, I received my order but had to pay 30% more for VAT and Customs taxes which makes it more expensive than normal.
Apparently, after BREXIT things change quote a lot for EU members. So all these discounts and promo codes are totally useless if you are out of the UK.
Again things could have been different if they replied to their email and put correct information into the website

tfk, the5krunner

you would have paid VAT last year, brexit has not changed that.
Duty is different but that should be quite small.
if NRG charge you vat and then your importing country also charges vat…that is an incorrect application of tax and someone has made a mistake.
at least that is my understanding.

Stoyan Delev

Well, I’ve been doing online shopping from the UK for many years and never paid vat or custom taxes because the UK was part of the EU. From 1.1.2021 things changed significantly.

tfk, the5krunner

afaik all consumers in the eu pay vat when they buy from a vat-registered business, regardless of the country where the business is situated. that was the case last year and this year. now in 2021 when you import from the USA or UK (ie non-EU) you should pay import taxes and duties levied by your country but the exporter should not be charging you a local sales tax/vat (unless on behalf of the importing country) bottom line: you pay vat as a consumer and you should pay it exactly once. not twice and not vat-free. in 2021 from outside the eu: you now pay duty as well but it is a relatively low amount and you may also be charged administration fees by dhl/ups/fedex which is their fee for collecting the vat/duty. companies need to either charge you a pre-paid duty/vat total amount or fulfil the order from within the eu. otherwise, the duty plus the admin fee can appear excessive. as i say. vat is effectively unchanged from 2020 (there are subtle variations because some countries eg Germany have higher vat rates) eg if you live in Austria near the german border. are you saying that in Austria… Read more »
